Clean set, consider swapping your current gray to gmk stock n9 and see if that looks good to you, it would cheapen the cost  :thumb: . Also reserved.

Stratosphere deskmat looking hella nice. The uniform render scenes and lightings are also a good addition, they add a level of consistency that keeps the IC nice and clean. Good job dude!

Agree, N9 would be nice to replace your 3rd color and stock color is cheaper than custom. Also, nice and suble sets, colors are very versatile too, expect a cloudy novelties. Finally, reserve.

It's a short poem that roughly translates to "Clouds no longer carry rain or storms, it carries color to the sky"

Note (for full transparency): Before IC, I downloaded and vectorized an image of clouds from a license-free photo site known as "Unsplash" that I put as a deskmat design. However, a couple of my friends found that the photo was on other sites besides the license-free site, which was very concerning. In respect of the original artist/photographer, I instantly removed it from my IC. The photo that was on the license-free website can be found here: https://unsplash.com/photos/ap3LXI0fPJY. As I am not sure if this was the original artist, I will not be using anything associating with that. Thank you.

It's a short poem that roughly translates to "Clouds no longer carry rain or storms, it carries color to the sky"

I did a quick search but couldn't find any reference. Is this an existing poem? It's grammatically incorrect and where are the spacings?

And second for hangul sublegend.

I'm not sure, I'll have to ask the deskmat designer for that. As for the grammer, I'm a second generation Korean American so my korean may be scuffed. Will double check. And will add correct spacings as well. Thanks for letting me know about this.

Thanks for the quick feedback.

I would love to see a hangul sublegend on these. Don't think there's a blue themed hangul kit out there.

liking this set so far hope we can see the novelties soon.They would look probably just as good as this set. I would like to see a change in the base set, by cutting of the numpad and making it an extra set you'll lower the cost of most customers, since 100%+ boards are pretty uncommon for enthusiast boards. And since you were using mostly stock colour I hope the colourmatching time doesn't take as much time as for example a set consisting of only custom colours.

I'm really loving the light blue tone of the keycaps. Super clean. Also, totally would go for hangeul kit if there was one. I want to see the novelties!!!!
Also sorry, but I'm just going to have to say something about the Haneul desk mat. I'm reading it and it feels like the designer maybe got a really cool Korean quote and put it through Google translate, or something like that? I put the text through google translate, and it comes up as "The clouds are no longer accompanied by rain and wind, and are colored in the sky." I know you mentioned it was based off a short poem, but I read it while trying really hard to understand what it means, at least in the Korean text.
Other than that, I look forward to seeing in GB soon.

Currently considering it but not sure. The hangul mat was made just for fun since I'm korean but an actual kit wouldn't make much sense as it doesn't fit the theme. But I can understand what you're saying.

Thanks! However, I will not be removing the numpad as there are people that use it and it would only cut a fraction of the set, and then that kit would cost triple the cost of what it would be as part of base. Novelties soon, and thanks for the support.

Has been fixed! And since spacing looked weird we added some cool dots instead.
